Kingston Maurward gardens & animal park

As the summer holidays draw to a close I am yet to tick everything off our summer holidays bucket list which makes me so cross I had so much planned but the weather has just not been on our side at all. Yesterday was dryish so I was just desperate to get the kids out and visit somewhere we have never been before. After reading my friend Alice’s (new young mum) blog post about it I really wanted to give Kingston Maurward gardens and animal park a try, so with coats and wellies at the ready off we headed. Of…

Tiger Sheds Grow Along

A little over a month ago I was invited to take part in a fun project with Tiger Sheds to grow our very own lettuce in the garden with the kids and track our progress each week. I knew this would be something the kids would love we’ve done bits of gardening before and they just love getting mucky and helping me. One slight problem is we hadn’t actually managed to keep anything alive so we took the challenge and I explained to the girls they really must remember to water the lettuce everyday or mummy is going to be very…
